Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
What are my best options to get a decent amount of info to seed the database with:
- allow free basic listings in return for a reciprocal link?
- scrape info from dmoz or comb the web and handbuild my listings
- some other way?
I am going to offer free listings in exchange for recip links initially and then give the opportunity to upgrade to a sponsored listing for a small fee after say 6 months of being in the directory.
I will also scour the web for suitable candidates and manually add them to the database. Follow up with an email telling them what I have done and ask for a link back.
Its all new to me but I think this would be one way of filling the directory with useful stuff before going live.
No offense to recipricol link directories, but they are typically filled with garbage sites and kill the integrity of the directory.
I'd also suggest filling the directory yourself with quality links you like.
